But put yourself in my position; just try to envision
Witnessin' your momma poppin' prescription pills in the kitchen

from Eminem – Cleanin' Out My Closet Lyrics on Rap Genius


Em’s mom is (in)famous for taking loads of drugs around Marshall, according to him.

In this line Eminem turns to the listener personally and reminds the listener of the fact that you shouldn’t judge him for dissing his own mother, because nobody ever went through the same shit as he did:

Remember when your mother was doing drugs in front of you? No you didn’t. So don’t judge me.
